When the news swept across the nation that John Hughes has passed away, many designers went back into the past and brought back some of the most popular school girl styles from his films such as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Sixteen Candles,” and “The Breakfast Club” into this year's fall-winter fashion.
Many of the schoolgirl classics have started to turn up on all fall-winter 2009-2010 runways. I am personally thrilled for the "School Girl" trend to make such a great come back. And what about you, do you look forward to seeing this era being brought back to the world?
1. Purple Checkered Dress - High Marks at A Detacher
Just as the name implies, this is a purple checkered dress to die for. This is so 1980’s fashion, but it has a more fabulous modern look to it. It'll give you that “school girl” look or that “business” look which is oh so hot right now. When you wear it, I would suggest some light brown stockings and purple shoes to go along with it.
2. Black and White Uniform Thinking at Burberry Prorsum
This Burberry back to school look sits on a classic white top and a black bottom. It will give you that comfortable yet rather chic school girl look. An outfit like this would really flatter someone that is around 5’4, but if you are taller or shorter, I am sure it will look good on you as well. Would you change anything about this outfit? I think I would do something with the end of the sleeves. You know, like add some ruffles to them or roll them up a bit. Oh, and I'd definitely add some seriously glamourous wide belt to spice things up. But overall, I give this one a thumbs up.
3. Brown Overcoat - Covering The Topic at Chloe
This is a light brown overcoat that will go great with a pants outfit. I am not sure if I am fully digging this style as it looks a bit too large. However, I believe it would look great on the right person and I do like the cute pockets that are on the front of it. The medium length is another thing that I like. Again, it just looks too baggy for something I would wear. I guess you could get it in a smaller size to change that.
4. Green and Grey Striped Sweater - Sweater Weather at DKNY
This is a green and grey striped sweater that would flatter anyone who likes the color green. This is one of those sweaters that you do not have to button up to make it look good. You can just pull it together in the middle and still get that fashionable look. It really does seem warm and comfortable with the side pockets to put your hands in when you are feeling a bit chilly. What would I change about this sweater? Well…I’m not sure as I think it looks good. Do you see anything on it that you would change?
5. Pink Sweater, Tan Jacket and Brown Pants - on The Move at Dsquared2
I think this overall look is a quite flattering. In fact, I think I saw a celebrity wearing something similar to it, but I cannot remember which celebrity it was. Kate Hudson? The jacket is tan, the pants are dark brown and the sweater is pink. Generally, I would say that this pink does not go with brown, but it seems to really be adding something to it. When you remove the pink sweater now that we have seen it this way, it would probably look a bit on the bland side. This style is easy to achieve and would be great for everyone who's after a low-key school girl look.
